One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Camellia lutchensis from Dr. Ackerman
This is a lovely little camellia, dainty almost with small leaves and small flowers. . Plus it's fragrant. The ultimate size is usually predicted to be 6-8 feet. bit who's had it long enough to know that? We rooted some cuttings last year so I'm going to plant this out this spring. USDA Zone 8, no problem! We'll site it carefully.
